As part of an ongoing suit from three former employees who accuse Charlie Rose of gender discrimination and harassment, the ousted CBS Morning anchor will have to answer questions about other women in the workplace who made similar complaints — even though they’re not involved in this litigation — a New York judge has ruled.
Defending a sexual harassment lawsuit, Rose testifies about his studio nickname and flirting with CBS Morning co-anchors. But the plaintiffs say he needs to be even more forthcoming.
A New York judge on Thursday dismissed a claim that Charlie Rose retaliated against three female employees who complained of sexual harassment. Judge Doris Ling-Cohan found that while Rose had allegedly disparaged the women — calling one a “f—ing idiot” and another a “f—ing kindergartner” — his comments did not amount to retaliation under the New York City Human Rights Law.
Gina Riggi, a longtime makeup artist says Rose used his Bloomberg TV studio as “a sexual hunting ground.”
Momentum at CBS This Morning, the most buzzworthy morning show for a handful of years, stopped dead with Charlie Rose’s firing. Last week CBS announced the exit of Ryan Kadro, the show’s top executive who had worked there since its 2012 launch, leaving an uncertain future. Today is hardly problem-free — remember Megyn Kelly? — but it has the steadiest audience of all three network morning shows. The elevation of Hoda Kotb into Lauer’s role is widely perceived as a winner.
In the past 13 months, CBS has undergone a companywide reckoning in the wake of the #MeToo movement that has stretched from its morning show to its primetime lineup, its news division to its executive suite. Three powerful men at the company — Leslie Moonves, its chief executive; Charlie Rose, its morning show anchor; and Jeff Fager, the executive producer of 60 Minutes — have all lost their jobs because of workplace conduct.
CBS News reached a legal settlement with three women who accused the network of not doing enough to stop one of its anchors, Charlie Rose, from sexually harassing them. The three women had worked for CBS when Mr. Rose was a host of CBS This Morning and a correspondent for 60 Minutes.
The former CBS News and PBS journalist late Thursday filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit by the former employees. He’s joining co-defendant CBS, which is also seeking to get the case thrown out of New York state court. Rose was fired by CBS and PBS last year for sexual misconduct.
In a Manhattan Supreme Court filing, the network’s news division asked to be dismissed from a suit filed by three women who claim Charlie Rose, the former CBS This Morning co-host, subjected them to “blatant and repeated sexual harassment.”
CBS News stated Tuesday in a story that the law firm of Proskauer Rose — which had been hired by the company in March to probe claims against TV anchor Rose made public in a Washington Post article — would fold its findings “into the efforts of two other law firms hired last week by the CBS board.” The Proskauer Rose report had been expected to be released this month.
Before the devastating allegations of sexual misconduct hit, Rose was a legendary man-about-town. Now, the former CBS and PBS star, one of TV’s most feted journalists, is hiding out on Long Island with occasional, mostly disastrous forays into Manhattan: “He’s focusing on trying to understand.”
CBS News has formed a “working group” to address complaints and suggestions about the company’s workplace environment, according to an email sent to employees on Tuesday. The move comes as network management is still facing scrutiny following the ousting of Charlie Rose in November.

A day after he was fired from CBS This Morning, the show reported that three women at CBS have reported misconduct by Rose. The network said one didn’t want details of her accusations made public, and all three requested anonymity.
Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations, with CBS News dismissing him today following a Washington Post report Monday citing accusations by eight women. The network’s news president, David Rhodes, said there is nothing more important than assuring a safe, professional workplace.
Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas. PBS and Bloomberg immediately suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose show. CBS announced that it was suspending Rose as it looked into the matter.
Bannon, speaking in a 60 Minutes interview that will air Sunday on CBS, said the “Billy Bush Saturday, to me, is a litmus test.” It was not clear from the video clip what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had advised Trump. But Bannon said he told Christie, “The plane leaves at 11 o’clock in the morning. If you’re on the plane, you’re on the team. Didn’t make the plane.”
